Dart® Daily Air Removal Test
Preassembled tests designed to evaluate the performance of pre-vacuum sterilizers
STERIS Dart® Daily Air Removal Test is an easy and accurate way to test air removal and steam penetration in pre-vacuum steam sterilizers operating at 132 to 134 ºC (270 to 273 ºF). It is a lightweight, compact, one piece system that is pre-assembled and ready for use. The Dart Daily Air Removal Test eliminates the need to spend time folding towels and preparing packs necessary for traditional Bowie Dick Test Packs. They conform to the ISO 11140 Type 2 standards.
HOW THE DART AIR REMOVAL TEST WORKS
Each day the Dart Daily Air Removal Test should be placed above the drain in an empty sterilizer. As the pre-vacuum sterilization cycle is run, steam will enter the challenge chamber and turn the indicator from yellow to black. When the cycle is complete, simply snap off the window and remove the indicator for your records.
